HYPE Projects

Co Design

"HYPE lets me take part in activities that make me feel like I am making positive changes to services and helping other young people."


"I have made film of my story and presented it at many training events."

"I used to feel quite inadequate and lonely but now I've joined HYPE, that's changed. I get emails and calls saying 'hey new event' and I feel important. I'm able to talk to any of the HYPE workers, as I know they will always listen."


"I have been inspired to remember why participation is so important so that our service includes and is accessible for everyone."


"I now understand what is meant by participation and have loads of ideas to try out."

"I have learned to be confident and I get to meet people who run services. It is fun to organise and we do it, we plan it and people listen to us."

"Hearing first hand experiences from Nura and Rebecca and seeing how passionate they are about this topic; made the workshop very engaging."

"Excellent - welcoming, relaxed, interactive. Accessible. Helpful to have lived experience shared."
